Excel Math Product

Excel
Math is committed to keeping our products current and correcting
any issues that may arise.
Whenever
possible we indicate the changes on the website as soon as they
are made to the Teacher Edition or Lesson Sheets.
Teachers
tend to use a Teacher Edition for several years, so minor discrepancies
may appear if we have corrected the Lesson Sheets before you get a new book.
If your student and Teacher Edition copyright dates match and you still find issues in the curriculum, please contact us with the page number and problem. We will
contact you quickly to resolve the issue.
NOTE: In mid2010 we made a number of changes to Kindergarten and 3rd grade to accomodate a new California Social Review. We took out all references to cookies, candies, sodas, etc. We did not change any of the calculations or the answers to problems. Only the subjects and a few images were adjusted. We appreciate your understanding  if you are using an older TE it may not exactly match the latest lesson sheets but your TE does not need to be replaced. Simply download the replacement pages below.
Thank
you for your support and use of Excel Math.
